Bangalore/Mumbai[India], Nov 21(ANI): betterU, an education marketplace focused on bringing quality education from around the world to Indian learners, on Monday announced a partnership with Pluralsight, the global leader in online learning for technology professionals.

Through this partnership, betterU and Pluralsight will empower individual learners to acquire new skills, advance existing skill sets, learn how to efficiently leverage new technologies and implement best practices in the workplace.

betterU would now offer more than 6,500 courses to consumers across various technology fields, including digital, data analytics, software development, IT operations, graphics design, industrial design and animation, thus taking them closer to building an all-inclusive education marketplace.

"We are thrilled to partner with Pluralsight as we continue to provide the perfect marketplace to meet the growing online learning demands in India," said CEO of better, Bradley Loiselle.

"Today the need for professionals to upgrade their skills continuously is more acute than ever, and this association is perfectly poised to address this gap. It is worth emphasizing that Pluralsight subscriptions give users unlimited access to many technology specializations," he added.

The platform is designed to empower technology professionals to expand proficiency, increase productivity and gain a competitive edge.

"The way Indian technology professionals are learning has changed. We see learning on-the-go, byte-sized learning, gamification and social learning as key trends. Pluralsight's platform is designed to support the technology professional's individual learning journey in any form or style," he added.

Launched earlier this year, betterU serves as a catalyst in skilling up and removing the learning gap by diversifying to provide an integrated learning and employment solutions on a single holistic platform providing all levels of education, school programs, skill development, higher education, self interest and employment services.
